Introduction
The House Rules for the 112th Congress call for greater transparency and accessibility to legislative documents. Specifically, two provisions were added to the rules by House Resolution 5: Clause 3 of Rule XXIX provides that a measure or matter will have been considered as having been publicly available within the meaning of the rules if it was publicly available in electronic form at a location designated by the Committee on House Administration. Clause 4(d)(1)(E) of Rule X directs the Committee on House Administration to establish and maintain standards for documents made available in electronic form by the House and its committees. The intention of these two provisions is to ensure that Members and the public have easy access to bills, resolutions, and amendments considered in committee and by the House. According to Chairman Dreiers statements before the House, The standard for electronic documents is intended to evolve over time. While the standard may initially include more static formats such as a searchable PDF, the intention is to eventually transition to more flexible structured data formats, such as XML, as the tools become available to ease the creation and ensure the integrity of House documents. With respect to availability, the provision is intended to place electronic distribution on par with traditional printing; rather than entirely replace it. Finally, the rule contemplates a singular location that will direct Members and the public to the text of measures to be considered by the House and its committees.2 The Speaker and House Leadership have directed the Clerk to create a centralized repository to provide access to documents that will be considered in committee and by the House. For 2011, the Committee on Rules is providing access to legislative text being considered by the House at http://rules.house.gov/billsthisweek.aspx?NewsID=337, and each committee is posting documents under consideration by the committee on their own websites. In 2012, the Office of the Clerk will maintain the site, http://docs.house.gov which will provide access to legislative text being considered by the House, and in 2013, the site will provide access to legislative text being considered by House committees. Additionally, the Committee on House Administration, as directed by House rules3, has established standards4 for posting House and committee documents and data electronically. As part of the standards, the Office of the Clerk has been directed to, publish and maintain naming standards for each document [required to be posted online as outlined in the standards]. These standards will facilitate automated searching and uploading of such documents. Files will be posted using permanent URL links. These links will facilitate outside and committee usage of these files. In addition, permanent URL links will allow archived committee web sites to maintain functionality5. This document describes the naming standards for electronic files for congressional documents covered under the aforementioned standards adopted by the Committee on House Administration on December 16, 2011. The goals in the naming conventions include: Reduce duplicate document names in the committee repository; Enable search and search engine capabilities; Allow the documents name to be self-identifying. Where possible, the naming standards follow existing naming conventions used by the Government Printing Offices Federal Digital System (FDSys).

Statements of House Committee on Rules chairman David Dreier, before the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressional Record, Jan. 5, 2011, pp. H7H13. 3 H. Res 5, Rule X - clause 4 sec (d)(1) states that the Committee on House Administration shall (E) establish and maintain standards for making documents publicly available in electronic form by the House and its committees. 4 http://cha.house.gov/sites/republicans.cha.house.gov/files/documents/member_services_docs/electronic_posting_standards.pdf 5 Committee on House Administration document entitled Standards for the Electronic Posting of House and Committee Documents & Data

4 Document Naming Conventions

Linking to documents on GPO or THOMAS


If a document has already been published and posted on GPOs FDSys System or the LOCs THOMAS system, it is acceptable and encouraged to link to these locations.

Identifying Members
Where it is necessary to have a member identifier in the file name, the Members Biographical ID number or Bioguide ID should be used. The current Members and their Bioguide IDs are listed in the appendix. For former Members, see http://bioguide.congress.gov. The benefits of using the Biographical ID number include having a unique identifier within and across Congresses, the Bioguide ID number is already in use by organizations in and outside of the Legislative Branch, and it avoids any duplicate document names due to duplicate or similar Member names.

Updates to the conventions


The conventions in this document will be updated when it is deemed necessary to add additional document types, add additional clarification to the naming conventions, or other circumstances. Starting with version 1.2 of this document, changes and addition will be noted in an appropriate footnote.

Feedback
If your committee would like to provide feedback on the naming conventions and their use, contact the Committee on House Administration.
